spect your system too often, because, you know, that could be a lot worse
than never looking at it. Better to put that lid back on and come back and talk
about it again in 20 years.

SOME NEED REGULATIONS


Many people are opposed to rules from the government in general
fearing over-regulation in many areas of life. I wont dispute that concern.
But lets look at septic systems and where mandated maintenance might be
a prudent idea.
Many homeowners build relationships with septic service providers
and rely on them to take care of their systems. Some people with septic sys-
tems further make it their business to learn how they work. A few will go so
far as to check the depth of sludge and clean their own outlet filters. Mainte-
nance regulations are not aimed at these people and, frankly, they probably
dont need them.
But how about people like Kloosterhuis and Riddell? Some people re-
fuse to listen to sound, expert advice about maintaining these complex and
expensive systems. We may need to mandate septic inspections and pump-
ing intervals to protect them from themselves and perhaps more impor-
tantly, protect their neighbors from them. Those of us who know a thing or
two about septic systems and want to protect the general public and the en-
vironment may choose to support reasonable maintenance rules.

THUMBS-DOWN
Just like we could give an award to a fine septic educator every year, we
could give a Siskel and Ebert-style thumbs-down every year to a person or
persons who set back those education efforts through their ignorant public
remarks. Ive suggested a few candidates and maybe you have a few more for
consideration. Share them with me at editor@pumper.com.

So too, when buying, you need to be able to look at that location with
the long view in mind.
Always be sure that when acquiring any property for a business that lo-
cation is still very important, and should be in your servicing area and close
to your employees, Hecht says. Also be sure that there are options for expan-
sion and that the zoning is properly researched prior to any commitment.
There is another option to consider, Hecht points out. As the owner of
your contracting business, you could set up a separate business entity that
owns the property, then leases it back to your contracting firm, which pays
the rent. An arrangement like this can give you some of the advantages of
flexibility unshackling your business from the land it is on while at the
same time maintaining the advantages that building long-term equity can
provide. Should changes make it advisable for you to move your operation
elsewhere, you might still profit in the long-term if you can find a new cus-
tomer for the property you own even as you leave it behind.
Then, your answer to Ingrassias question might actually be, Well, Im
in both the real estate business and my other business.
These are highly complicated arrangements, and you shouldnt consid-
er them without walking through all your options, their advantages and dis-
advantages against your specific business conditions, needs, and long-term
plans with your lawyer, accountant and other professional advisers.
If rethinking exactly what kind of relationship you want to have with the
grounds and buildings your business stands on intrigues you, it might be
time to take a closer look.

The ups and downs
of land application
Because Smith Sanitary Septic Service operates year-round and
deals with a large volume of septage, land application is an economical
and efficient alternative to hauling to a treatment plant, says Stephen
Smith. But it takes planning and plenty of storage to meet regulations and
have the flexibility to work around the weather.
The farm owned by Smiths Sanitary Septic Service has three under-
ground tanks: a 500,000-gallon tank, 750,000-gallon tank and a 1 million-
gallon tank. These poured concrete tanks range from 8 to 10 feet in height
and 119 to 140 feet in diameter, and were constructed following Natural
Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) regulations for manure storage.
They feature required leak detection systems for holding septage.

to have the top-of-the-line equipment, Stephen adds.

ADAPTING AND IMPROVING


During their decades of work in the wastewater industry, Steve and
Joan have witnessed many changes, and theyve blended traditional and
new ways of working. They still work from home, but now two large shops
with three bays each house the bigger trucks they purchased in the past sev-
eral years. Steve has a washing area outside to keep the trucks clean accord-
ing to his high standards. Maintenance and minor repair work can be done
indoors by a part-time mechanic.
In her home office, Joan, Annalee Werelius and Donna Hull keep the driv-
ers on track with daily job sheets, which they can update or add stops for driv-
ers through cellphone texts. All the trucks have GPS. Customers can pay bills
with credit cards through the office. When shes not in the office, Joan can often
be found mowing about 2 acres of lawn to keep up the business appearance.
Driver/technicians are Jeff Baldwin, Darren Dixon, Adam Kreider, Na-
thanael Nell, Alan Pullin, Todd Sherman, James Stiff, Jeff Schuhart, Gerald
Shanebrook and Ray Sloan.
The Smiths maintain a landline phone and advertise in five phone
books, but also have taken up new technologies to improve marketing, uti-
lizing a website, a Facebook page and employing small-business digital mar-
keting firm Hibu.
Though Steve and Joan have reached a typical retirement age, thats not
part of any discussion, Joan says. The business is a big part of their lives, and
they enjoy what they do. Besides maintaining the trucks, Steve drives and
provides services when the need comes up.
Eventually, we would like to take more time off, Joan says.

Provincial officials acknowledge this will impose costs on property
owners and on municipalities that will manage enforcement, but they also
say current code does not require regular pumping.

northern shore of Lake Superior, passed resolutions opposing the proposal.
News reports said the communities are asking the province to exempt rural
residential homeowners.

Helping hands indispensable crew member:
I cant choose one member, as all contribute an important role. It is a
difficult industry to maintain good help, so the turnover rate can be high.
The crew members we have presently have been with us for several years
and each brings something different to the table. Our lead foreman has been
with us 35 years and his knowledge is irreplaceable.

The job Ill never forget:


Every job has its story. The most recent one is a residential site where we
had to crane all the equipment and materials in and out due to the slope of
the property on the side of a mountain. The yard was probably 50 feet below
the road with no accessibility. It was a tedious process but the cranes, com-
bined with the talent of the crew, got the job done. The customer, neighbors,
sanitarians and all involved were very impressed with the final product.

My favorite piece of equipment:

a large part of our business, which used to require digging and repairing by In a recent job,

for school. I knew I would follow in my fathers footsteps, expanding and
growing the family business, just as I have. In hindsight, I wouldnt have
changed a thing.

Crystal ball time this is my outlook for the wastewater industry:


Ive seen things change from when I was younger, backing up to a pond
and blowing your septic truck off and looking at the biggest tomatoes youve
ever seen grow in what they call lagoons! Today we have to give samples
when we go to the treatment plant since the technology with dewatering has
changed so drastically. Technology has become a game-changer in our in-
dustry in terms of snaking and cameras and things of that nature, and the
key is to stay on top of the constant changes. Some people dont like change.
I am all for it. I want the latest and greatest products and equipment avail-
able that are going to save me time and the customer money.

Know the Forces That Impact


Water Movement Through Soil Pores
Its important to understand how water moves through different soils when diagnosing septic system
performance issues By Jim Anderson, Ph.D.

A
reader posed a question about water in the soil and how it moves. He
asked: Is it true that regardless of whether a lower soil is a sand or If the upper layer has a significantly higher
clay texture that water will not move into the lower layer until the layer permeability, the water ponds because the lower
above is saturated? Yes it is true, and the answer has relevance to what we
do in a couple of different ways. Before we discuss those, let me try to explain layer cannot transmit water as fast as the upper layer
why the answer is true. delivers it due to the size of the pores.
The ability of soil to conduct water is not controlled by the total porosity
of the soil. This is called soil permeability or conductivity. It is controlled by
size, continuity and what soil scientists call tortuosity of the pores. Tortuosity Back to the question: Soil layers that have different pore sizes and per-

of water that will move through sand over a given time period is much greater. and continuity, means that for water to move from one layer into another,
This is because the pores in a sandy soil are larger and more continuous than the soil above the lower layer has to become saturated at the boundary be-

had no right to tell a private contractor what they should charge for their
time any more than we could tell a restaurant owner how much to charge
for a cheeseburger. We tell homeowners that they should compare quotes
for septic inspections.

Pumper: Have you had any growing pains during the first year of the
ordinance?
Lahners: Initially we were issuing orders for failed systems and also
for missing components including baffles, tank risers and gas deflectors. In-
spectors were telling clients and Realtors that everything was fine and then
we might still issue orders for those (components). The original intent of the
ordinance was to identify failing septics, so last October we met with Real-
tors to iron out these details. I developed a summary page to accompany
the 12-page IOWPA inspection report, which identifies what has to be fixed,
such as failed systems or cracked tanks, and also what is recommended for
the proper functioning of the system. A missing baffle is now identified as an
item that is highly recommended for repair, but not required for compliance.
Weve also had some homeowners decide they didnt want to sell their
homes after their septic system failed an inspection. That doesnt change the
fact that they have a nasty pool of sewage in their yard they still have to fix it.

Pumper: Can you share any statistics about inspections since the or-
dinance took effect?
Lahners: As of March 31, 2017, we have seen 499 septic systems in-
spected. Weve had 34 systems failed and had 28 tanks and five distribu-
tion boxes replaced. Weve closed four cesspools, one pipe going straight
out to the lake, eight graywater systems used for a washing machine or sink,
and two systems where washing machines were discharging straight to the
ground.

Pumper: Has the ordinance attracted any attention in the rest of the
state?
Lahners: Ive had other counties contact me to see how they could enact
a similar ordinance and Ive given presentations on that. Whats particularly
important to them is how we included stakeholders in developing the
ordinance, so that everyone could feel they had some influence on the
result.
